Multiple Choice Questions: This section contains 20 multiple choice questions. Each question has 4 choices (1), (2), (3) and (4), out of which ONLY ONE is correct.

Choose the correct answer :

1. Consider the efficiency of Carnot engine is given by

\(\begin{array}{l} \eta=\frac{\alpha\beta}{\sin\theta}\text{log}_e\frac{\beta~x}{kT},\end{array} \)
where α and β are constants. If T is temperature, k is Boltzmann constant,θ is angular displacement, and x has the dimensions of length. Then, choose the incorrect option

\(\begin{array}{l}\left(A\right) \text{Dimensions of}~ \beta~ \text{is same as that of force}.\\ \left(B\right) \text{Dimensions of} ~\alpha^{-1}x~ \text{is same as that of energy.}\\ \left(C\right)\text{Dimensions of}~ \eta^{-1}sin~\theta~ \text{is same as that of} ~\alpha \beta.\\ \left(D\right) \text{Dimensions of} ~\alpha ~\text{is same as that of }\beta.\end{array} \)

Answer (D)


\(\begin{array}{l} (\text{A})\ \left[\beta\right]=\left[\frac{kT}{x}\right]=\left[\frac{E}{x}\right]=\left[MLT^{-2}\right] = \left[F\right] \end{array} \)
\(\begin{array}{l}\left(B\right)\left[\alpha \beta\right] = \left[M^0L^0T^0\right]\end{array} \)
\(\begin{array}{l} \left[\alpha\right]^{-1}=\left[\beta\right]=\left[\frac{KT}{x}\right]\end{array} \)
\(\begin{array}{l}So \left[\alpha\right]^{-1}\left[x\right] = \left[kT\right] = \left[ML^2T^{-2}\right]\end{array} \)
\(\begin{array}{l}\left(C\right) \eta sin \theta = \alpha \beta\\ So \left[\eta sin\theta \right] = \left[\alpha \beta\right] \end{array} \)
\(\begin{array}{l}\left[\eta\right] = \left[M^0L^0T^0\right] \text{it is dimensionless quantity}\end{array} \)
\(\begin{array}{l}\left(D\right) \left[ \alpha\right] \neq \left[\beta\right]\end{array} \)

\(\begin{array}{l}\Rightarrow F=-\frac{dU}{dx}=-\left(4\right)\left(4 \sin 4x\right)\\ = -16 sin 4x\end{array} \)

As small x

F = -16(4x) = -64x = -kx

\(\begin{array}{l} T=2\pi\sqrt{\frac{m}{k}}=2\pi\sqrt{\frac{4}{64}}=\frac{\pi}{2} \end{array} \)
\(\begin{array}{l}\Rightarrow K = 2\end{array} \)


6. An electrical bulb rated 220 V, 100 W, is connected in series with another bulb rated 220 V, 60 W. If the voltage across combination is 220 V, the power consumed by the 100 W bulb will be about ____ W.

Answer (14)


\(\begin{array}{l} P_{100}=\frac{V^2}{R_{100}}\Rightarrow R_{100}=\frac{V^2}{P_{100}} \end{array} \)
\(\begin{array}{l} P_{60}=\frac{V^2}{R_{60}}\Rightarrow R_{60}=\frac{V^2}{P_{60}}\end{array} \)
\(\begin{array}{l} P_{\text{net}}=\frac{V^2}{R_{60}+R_{100}}=\frac{P_{60}P_{100}}{P_{60}+P_{100}}=\frac{60\times100}{160}=37.5\end{array} \)

This power developed is proportional to resistance.


\(\begin{array}{l} P’_{60}=P_\text{net}\times \frac{60}{160}=37.5\times\frac{60}{160}\simeq 14 \text{ W}\end{array} \)


7. For the given circuit the current through battery of 6 V just after closing the switch S will be _____ A.

JEE Main 2022 July 28 Shift 2 Physics NQ 7

Answer (1)

Sol. Just after closing the switch,

\(\begin{array}{l} i=\frac{6}{4+2}=1\text{ A}\end{array} \)


8. An object O is placed at a distance of 100 cm in front of a concave mirror of radius of curvature 200 cm as shown in the figure. The object starts moving towards the mirror at a speed 2 cm/s. The position of the image from the mirror after 10 s will be at ____ cm.

JEE Main 2022 July 28 Shift 2 Physics NQ 8

Answer (400)

Sol. The object after 10 second will be at u = –80 cm.


\(\begin{array}{l} \frac{1}{v}-\frac{1}{80}=-\frac{1}{100}\Rightarrow v=\frac{8000}{+20}=400\text{ cm} \end{array} \)


9. In an experiment with a convex lens, the plot of the image distance (ν′) against the object distance (μ′) measured from the focus gives a curve ν′μ′ = 225. If all the distances are measured in cm. The magnitude of the focal length of the lens is _______ cm.

Answer (15)

Sol. Using Newton’s formula for lenses,

\(\begin{array}{l}v’ \mu’ = f^2 = 225 \Rightarrow f= 15\end{array} \)


10. In an experiment to find acceleration due to gravity (g) using simple pendulum, time period of 0.5 s is measured from time of 100 oscillations with a watch of 1 s resolution. If measured value of length is
10 cm known to 1 mm accuracy, the accuracy in the determination of g is found to be x %. The value of x is _________ .

Answer (5)


\(\begin{array}{l} T=2\pi\sqrt{\frac{l}{g}} \end{array} \)
\(\begin{array}{l} \frac{dg}{g}\times100=\frac{2dT}{T}\times 100+\frac{d\ell}{\ell}\times100\end{array} \)
\(\begin{array}{l} =2\times\frac{1}{50}\times100+\frac{1}{100}\times100=5\%\end{array} \)
